Ahead of Friday night’s Bundesliga clash, GGFN’s Chris Baker previews the clash between Hertha BSC and Borussia Mönchengladbach at the Olympiastadion Berlin.
André Schubert’s men, who are without a win in the Bundesliga in four games currently sit 11th in the table after a shocking start to the season – by their standards.
If Mönchengladbach ever needed a win and maximum points, then it is tomorrow night. A win can take Schubert’s team up to joint sixth with Borussia Dortmund, whilst they will be hoping they can build some momentum in the coming weeks and put recent months behind them. The problem is, Mönchengladbach are without a single goal in their last four league games and look blank up top, as well as defensively unreliable – although, they do welcome back Raffael.
On the plus side, Mönchengladbach have won there last five meetings between the two sides and comfortably done the double over Hertha last season, winning 4-1 and 5-0.
There opponent, Hertha BSC are sitting in fifth place, with the prospect of going joint second if they take the points on Friday night.
The home side still boast a 100% home record thus far this season in a very impressive start. But, the away side will be hoping Hertha carry on from where they left of last week as the hosts lost 1-0 away to Hoffenheim which was just there second defeat of the season.
The Alte Dame faithful will be hopeful last weeks defeat doesn’t dampen their spirit too much going into the game, especially as they have won the last four consecutive home matches making the Olympiastadion a tough ground to go to.
Hertha will be hoping to exploit Mönchengladbach’s on going away troubles with the away side without a win on the road going into match-day 10.
